I’ve been wearing pants a lot in general when I play so I can keep the blood circulation going. It’s a fun suit but it’s also functional so I can be able to play without any problems.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tough point: Serena Williams in action TuesdayLONDON, United Kingdom, May 30 – Serena Williams insists the black bodysuit she wore at the French Open much more than a fashion statement.The 36-year-old revealed that she wears the “catsuit” to prevent blood clots – a problem she has struggled with previously including during her pregnancy.last_img read more

Ducks burned by former star

first_imgNHL: Kariya has a goal and three assists to lead St. Louis over Anaheim. By The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Blues signed Paul Kariya, hoping he would add some much-needed offense. So far, so good. Andy McDonald and Mark Mowers scored for the Ducks, who fell to 0-5-1 on the road. One of those losses includes a game played against the Kings in London to start the season. “It was a hard-fought battle,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “This is the type of game we’ve been involved with for a while here. “I thought our guys reached back and gave us everything they had. I’ve got to be proud of their effort.” Manny Legace had 14 saves and improved to 9-1-1 against the Ducks. He hasn’t lost to them since Nov. 16, 1998. McDonald gave the Ducks a 1-0 lead 1:37 into the second period when he redirected Kent Huskins’ centering attempt past Legace on the Ducks’ first shot of the period. The Ducks would not get another shot on goal until 2:22 remained in the period. By then, Kariya had helped the Blues score three times. “We got it going and kept the pedal down and were rewarded in the second period,” Kariya said. The Blues tied it at 7:01 when Jay McKee’s shot from the left point hit Kariya in front. The puck bounced right to Tkachuk and he backhanded it past Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere. Boyes gave the Blues a 2-1 lead at 10:27 when he tipped Kariya’s slap shot from the top of the right circle by Giguere. With the Blues on the power play later in the period, Kariya got the puck on the right boards, faked a shot and passed cross ice to Boyes, who put it in the open side at 16:46 to make it 3-1. The two-goal lead didn’t last long as Mowers batted a rebound of Corey Perry’s shot by Legace at 17:38 on the Ducks’ second shot of the period. Kariya added an empty-net goal at 19:27 to seal the win.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

Kariya, who had 72 points for Nashville last season, has nine assists and 11 points for the Blues in his first seven games. Kariya credited his linemates, Keith Tkachuk and Brad Boyes, for helping with his spurt. “(Tkachuk) got us going,” Kariya said. “He was going to the net, creating a lot of traffic, and it was nice to see him rewarded there.” Boyes scored twice and has six goals and two assists on the season. Tkachuk had a goal and two assists. “It’s taken me 21 games just to score one (before),” Boyes said. “But I come here and it’s been good. It’s easy when you’re playing with those guys, but I still think we can improve.” last_img read more

Santa Ana winds whips region, knocks out power in Valley

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson From Monday night through Tuesday, 10,000 Los Angeles residents – largely in the Valley – lost power from the roaring winds. At least one San Fernando Valley transformer caught fire, officials said. The most extreme winds in the area topped out Tuesday morning at 112 mph at Whitaker Peak in the Angeles National Forest, west of the Golden State Freeway and Teplin Highway, authorities said. Malibu Hills in the Topanga Canyon area felt 78 mph winds about 7 a.m. Tuesday morning, which dropped to 70 mph by afternoon. Sitting five miles north of Castaic Lake, Warm Springs was jolted with wind averaging 71 mph throughout the day. Despite the high winds, wildfires feared by fire officials failed to materialize. Around town, wind rattled buildings, windows and doors, setting off burglar alarms, and creating some confusion and annoyance for nearby homeowners. In the West Valley, police received 40 calls – three times more than usual – about blaring burglar alarms. “The wind blows the doors and windows and causes a break in the system,” said Los Angeles Police Lt. Greg Baltad. Gusts in Winnetka sent a large tree crashing onto a minivan at Bassett and Oso streets, residents said. Another fallen tree blocked a traffic lane on Don Juan Place in Woodland Hills, causing motorists to swerve around it as they headed out to holiday celebrations. It’s been four straight days of rugged winds blowing across the Southland – unusual for the Santa Anas, which usually last a day and a half, said Stuart Seto, weather specialist with the Oxnard-based National Weather Service. It’s different this time. As the high pressure blows from Nevada into California, it’s being fueled by strong winds 10,000 feet high and also mixing with low pressure from the coast, Seto said. “They pile up on top of each other,” Seto said. Windy weather should decrease today Wednesday, with peak gusts expected to fall to 30 mph. But the wind is expected to gain speed again by Thursday, peaking at 45 mph. Come Friday, Seto warns, have your umbrellas on standby: There’s a a 30 percent chance of rain, which could stretch into Saturday. sue.doyle@dailynews.com 818-713-3746 Gale-force Santa Ana winds peaking at 112 mph whipped through the region Tuesday, knocking out power for 4,000 Los Angeles residents and ripping large trees from the ground. Hundreds of North Valley residents from Granada Hills, Northridge, North Hills and Woodland Hills sat in the dark for part of Christmas Day after ferocious 60 mph winds blew from the north, knocking out power along the way. About 35 crews from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power scurried around town to restore electricity Tuesday afternoon to Valley residents as red-flag fire alerts hung over Los Angeles and Ventura counties. “The winds come through the Santa Susana Pass. That helps push them,” said Kim Hughes, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles DWP. “Usually those areas up against the mountains see higher wind velocities.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
